Ben Bishop will start between the pipes for Dallas

Dallas Stars goalie Ben Bishop is getting the start in the season opener on Friday.

What It Means:

Bishop is making his first appearance in a Dallas uniform after spending the 2016-17 season with the Tampa Bay Lightning and Los Angeles Kings. He posted 2.54 goals against average, and a .910 save percentage in 39 games played last season.

Our models project Bishop as the second-best goalie option on Friday's limited slate with 2.5 goals allowed, 26.2 saves, and a 62.0% chance of winning versus the Las Vegas Golden Knights.
